The state of Illinois is set to receive $151 million in federal funding to revitalize communities that have been hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis.
The funding is part of the second phase of the Hardest Hit Fund, for which Congress allocated $2 billion. The fund was created in February 2010 as a means to provide aid for communities that were most impacted by the great recession and housing crisis.
